3 Network Diagram Any schematic display of the logical relationships between the project s activities. It is always depicted from left to right to show the chronological sequence of project execution. Vulgarly known as PERT network. The diagram shows the interrelationships between all activities in a project.

4 Network Diagram

5 The Origin of the Network Diagram Developed in 1957 by the US Navy during the construction of the Polaris submarines. It was a joint effort between the Navy and Lockheed, a traditional aviation and military company with links to NASA and Booz, Allen & Hamilton. By using this new tool, it was possible to reduce the development time of the Polaris Project in 45%.

6 Type of Network Diagram AOA Activity on Arrow AON Activity On Node

7 AOA Activity On Arrow Shows the diagram with the activities being represented by arrows that connect to an initial and a final state. Mainly used when managing projects without a computer. Also known as ADM (Arrow Diagramming Method).

8 Network Diagram - AOA

9 AON Activity On Node Shows the activities on nodes between the arrows. Currently the most used visualization tool because it is automatically generated by most of the project management software tools.

10 Network Diagram - AON

11 Some Observations There is a starting point. There is an end point. All activities have predecessors. All activities have successors. The network must be kept up-to-date There are no loops.
